- What road bike?
I have a mate who's trying ( successfully )to get me to buy a road bike.He wants to do the SarnHelen Sportife .
I've not been on a road bike for years, but used as a kid ( Didn't everyone?)Posted 7 years ago
What should I be looking for? ( £1200 budget or there abouts ) open question I realize,but some basic advice would be appreciated.ThanksFuzzyWuzzyMember
Should be plenty of offers around LBS's for 2010 models, I'd go there (and at least get a basic fit) rather than order on-line given you seem to have no road bike experience. For that money you should be getting at least a carbon frame & fork with either 105, Rival or Veloce and probably some basic wheels. With a sale deal you might be able to step up to Ultegra/Force/Athena etc.Posted 7 years ago

Always thought I enjoyed mountain biking more until last April when I joined my LBS club for road rides to help with fitness. A short time later I was the proud owner of this.
Have only ride my mountain bike once since then. 🙁edhornbySubscriber
for around 1200 (which will get you a very nice road bike!) you could get the planet X nanolight with rival, very nice! or the SL pro for a bit less, also very good
what the others said about getting the end of 2010 lines or s/h will get you some good stuff, have a look at canyon or a cannondale CAAD9 if you can find one in stock that fits, very highly regarded also

clwydrider – yes it is the 725 frame. The 853 frame went ages ago, that must have been 2 years ago I had that. It went to someone on the forum but my memory for names is shocking.
pinches – yes it is Ultegra 6700. I do like the black 105 but I sold that groupset a few weeks ago. I do like your stealth bike, you have done well.Posted 7 years ago
